Käpy is an eye-catching pendant light. Käpy’s shape and inspiration come from spruce cones and different kind of patterns that I draw in my sketchbook. One source of inspiration was also product photography and I wanted to display the finished prototype in a "different" way.
Käpy has been very popular and it has been shown in various design blogs, sites and magazines such as Artsthread, Roomido, Neo-funkkis and Plaza koti -magazine. Now I'm looking for the right partner to commercialize Käpy and make it into real product!

Flowered is summer in wintertime. I miss summer so I brought it back.
Flowered is metal chair covered with flowers. Sit on it and you travel back to summer in the middle of a flower field.
Flowers represent the beauty in life. All beauty is evanescent. The temporary existence is what makes life so beautiful.
Materials: wire chair and flowers
Dimensions: 830 x 420 x 410 mm

Intuition is a pendant light that is an end result of an intuitive design process. Intuition is also one part of my graduation work from Lahti Institute of Design.
I'm fascinated about the intuitive mind and I wanted to discover what kind process it would be if I silenced my rational mind and let my intuition lead the design process.
The journey from abstract ink paintings to finished prototype was really interesting and I found my own way of working and designing products.
My graduation project is presented in Lahti Institute of Design’s yearbook 2016 and you can read it at theseus.fi. I was also at Helsinki adult education college (HEO) lecturing about intuitive and rational design processes.
